Product Description

Review

From the reviews:

“This is a handbook principally for those in paramedic/ambulance corps who provide care to patients prior to hospitalization. … The authors endeavor to provide a knowledge base and guide therapy for those without a clinical experience base. The book develops technical, medical, and pharmacological concepts … . Paramedics, EMTs, or other members of first-responder teams are the intended audience. … The primary focus is the attainment of airway control. … As an academic anesthesiologist, I found this a very quick read.” (Martin Dauber, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2011)

“The authors of this handbook are anaesthetists from a military background who have developed a course for paramedics to introduce concepts of pre-hospital anaesthesia care. This book evolved from this course and is aimed at emergency physicians, other medical practitioners and paramedics … . authors are to be congratulated for making the steps to successful pre-hospital rapid sequence intubation very clear … . Cricoid pressure is well-described and many excellent tips about successful anaesthetic techniques are given.” (M. Fong, Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, May, 2011)

From the Back Cover

The safe and swift establishment of a secure airway is crucial in the pre-hospital situation, and many pre-hospital systems have developed standard operating procedures that involve inducing anesthesia for airway control. Developed from the manual for a two-day course on the introduction to pre-hospital anesthesia given by the Great North Air Ambulance Service, the Pre-Hospital Anesthesia Handbook details the procedures, drugs and algorithms used by the expert crews of the Great North Air Ambulance. Authored by authorities in both the clinical application and the academic research aspects of pre-hospital anesthesia, it provides a focused, evidence-based foundation for any practitioner who wishes to learn this potentially life-saving procedure.

A very comprehensive and informative publication.
If aiming to be involved with pre hospital anaesthesia then look no further. Evidence based, clear and concise methodology with flash cards for revision if studying for a PHA course, Dip IMC or expanding your knowledge in pre hospital care.
Written by people involved in the delivery of care for those aspiring too.
